In "Motor/Generator Analysis Redux" I wrote, but nobody replied to:

Many thanks to Jim and other contributors to the thread "Motor/Generator Analysis".

I have put a lot of money and time into this, and I want to give it my best shot, but I don't want to whip a dead horse, so to say.

Frankly, I don't understand magnetics. At least not as I understand resonance. I'm an amateur musician; I understand resonance and know a little about phase shifts near the peak. I do understand that because the slope of the curve is negative on the high-frequency (capacitative)

side of resonance, loading of the generator, within limits, will result

in additional power to meet the load.

But B x I makes my head spin. I'm fine in 3 dimensions. So I get some of it. And I get that in the cylindrical coordinate system, B and I can

be locally orthogonal, and can vary in time, with phase shifts, while being wrapped into a connected topology. I just don't feel that the way

I feel resonances. It's not intuitive.

Would replacing the rotor "windings" with copper wire or bus bar (easy), and rewinding the stator with bigger wire (hard) have any chance at all of working together by lowering the leakage inductance and rotor resistance to allow resonance?

That's my best question; is there any hope at all?

This is a one-off demo, not a production prototype!
